Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) are a way for parents to support their children and their school. According to the School Act, every parent or guardian belongs to their school’s PAC. PACs provide an avenue for parents to advise the school on any matter relating to the education of their children. The School Act recognizes that parents have important insights and perspectives that can enhance decision-making in schools.
Each year an election is held for PAC executive and appointed positions, and those parents help steer the PAC through its many responsibilities. Parent participation can involve simply attending the monthly PAC meetings, volunteering to help with certain events in the school or taking on an executive position. We encourage you to attend the PAC meetings and help us determine the direction of PAC sponsored events and fund-raising activities.
Our Wiltse PAC has been an active and valued partner in helping build a sense of community in the school. It has provided a Fun Lunch Program every Friday, operated a Safe Arrival Program every morning, purchased guitars for the guitar club, provided a clay tile art project for all students, purchased “Pikes Peak” playground equipment, purchased sound field systems to aid in instruction, purchased a quality sound system for the gymnasium, sponsored a teacher/staff appreciation week, and provided funds to support the swimming, skating and skiing programs in the school. We hope that you will support your child by helping PAC build a supportive community of students, parents, teachers, assistant and administrative staff at Wiltse School.
